Holiday Home Tour Committee
Chair: Barbara Forlenza
The Holiday Home Tour is our signature event. For the past 12 years, this "All Hands on Deck" activity brings our members together to put together one of Stuart's most popular holiday activities. Each year, over 500 people tour some of the area's most beautifully decorated homes.
Funds raised are awarded as scholarships for exemplary young women in Martin County and support other charitable activities.
The Benevolence Committee makes decisions regarding how to distribute the funds we raise. They are charged with identifying groups or individuals who reside in Martin County who will benefit from our assistance.
Chair: Jennifer McTeague
The Scholarship Committee reviews college scholarship applications from our four Martin Coumty Public High Schools and from other women seeking to further their education. Each application is carefully reviewed by each committee member to determine the applicant's qualifications. The committee finalizes the scholarship award decisions and presents the awards to each winner at their school's ceremony.
Chair: Mary Maskal
The Girlfriends Committee is a group of dynamic members who help new members get acquainted and plan fun activities and mini-fundraisers for the club. Since many of The Girlfriends are professional women they hold a lunch hour meeting once a month. They also get together each month for "Five O'Clock Somewhere", an evening of fun and friendship. All Club members are welcome to be a part of the Girlfriends Committee.

Each club member is required to serve as a hostess on the Hospitality Committee for one meeting each year. Under the direction of our 2nd Vice President, members help plan, prepare, set up and clean up for one of the delicious luncheon meals served at our monthly meetings.
If you are unable to serve on your scheduled day, please make every effort to find a replacement and contact the Hospitality Chair.
Chair: Jo Baxter
The Literary Group is a book club with a difference. They choose a topic and each person chooses their own book to discuss at the following meeting. This makes for lively discussion and ideas for future reading material.
This group meets on the last Wednesday of the month unless otherwise announced in the monthly newsletter.
This group is made up of the keepers of the club's memories. They collect current articles about our club and make a digital scrapbook of our club's activities for each presidential term.
Chair: Polly Pharo
Our Sunshine Committee offers encouragement and support to club members who are sick, hospitalized, or generally need some cheer in their lives. They send cards to club members and their families when needed. If you know of someone who needs some sunshine, please contact email@example.com
